MOSCOW, Jan. 27 (UPI) -- Rescue crews said they found some survivors from a capsized Russian fishing boat in the Sea of Japan, but 20 others remained unaccounted for.

The Chance-101 rolled over and sank Sunday in Japanese waters off Russia's Primorye Territory early Sunday with 30 people aboard.

Russia's Emergency Situations Ministry told the RIA Novosti news service a life raft with 10 survivors was recovered by a nearby ship.

Four surface vessels and a search plane continued looking for other survivors. Another aircraft was dispatched to the scene and would join the search Monday.
